Newbie here. I'm a DP who's been forced into learning how to edit due to my lazy so-called friends who call themselves editors. all though i mentioned that i'm being forced to learn, i'm also looking forward to it as well. i tried skimming through all of the posts here and the FAQs, but couldn't really find what i was looking for amazingly.
I need to find a book for beginners on how to use Premiere Pro CS3. maybe a "CS3 for Dummies" perhaps. i'm aware of Lynda.com, but was wondering if anyone could recommend a book. i'm open to websites, but books have always been a great starting point for me. so, please let me know what i should do to get started in the wonderful world of Premiere Pro CS3, soon to be CS4 as soon as i feel comfortable upgrading to Vista.
thanks in advance.
I personally recommend the manual. It's there precisely for people such as yourself.
Like Jim and Ann, I am a big believer in the manual, the Help files (like the manual better, but then I like books), and the CiaB series.
Here's a great RESOURCE with a ton of FAQ's and also tutorials.
Spend a few days with the manual, then work thorugh CiaB and finally hit the wiki for several days of reading and viewing. When done, read the manual one more time, because more of it will make perfect sense then.
